Sporting Directors Report
Still not much going on in Motorsport at the moment. Due to current Covid restrictions the October “GEAR” meeting has been cancelled & we are hopeful that the December “GEAR” meeting scheduled for Wednesday December 1st will go ahead.
We’re all having motor sport withdrawals, it will be great to get the cars back on the track again & catch up with fellow Motorsport enthusiasts.
“GEAR Club Gearbox” magazine editor Alan McMaster is bringing out a fortnightly news letter called the “Car - Owna Virus” news letter to keep “GEAR” members keen & informed on what’s happening.
Have you watched the “Monterey Motorsports Reunion” at “Leguna Seca Circuit California” or the recent “Goodwood Revival”, which is the only historic race meeting to be staged in period theme recreating Motor Racing as it used to be in days gone by . Within both of these events you will be able to watch a wide variety of historic cars racing from big banger “Can- Am” open sports cars , “Trans - Am” cars , “Indy Cars”, “British Sports Cars & Sedans”, “GP” Cars . How good are the drifting E Type Jaguars to watch , great car control quick machines considering their age. If you haven’t watched any of these events do yourself a favour & get on the net & have a look I’m sure you will enjoy it. I know it gets me keen to get the “B” back on the track & experience the thrills & oops moment’s Motorsport has to offer.
Hopefully in the next couple of months there will be some events that “Team Hunter” members have competed in & I can report on.
Good luck to all those carrying out work on their cars during the lockdown period I hope all is going well
